Climbing magazine reports that these two climbers completed a major new route up to the top of the Angel, “one of the premier peaks of Alaska’s Revelation Mountains.”  They began the adventure July 13 and finished July 21. Their trip opened up “more options in an Alaskan range that is ripe with exploratory climbing objectives,” according to Dougald MacDonald from Climbing magazine.
